Venue was great! Free snacks, nice lobby area....the only negative is the seats...they are folding chairs with worn out cushions...caused numb butt, not just for us, but we saw many seated in front of us shifting in their seats frequently trying to get comfortable. I did see someone brought a seat cushion...so they must have had past experience at this venue.

Very small you sit on folding chairs Would be nice if they had bistro tables . They put a lot of thought in the main room It was beautiful . But very uncomfortable in theater and no tables .The show was very good .

The cast was excellent. The venue was great. Nice small theater and convenient free parking. The snacks and apple cider that were provided were an added bonus.

The theater was nicely appointed and comfortable to wait in the lobby until the play started. The restrooms were immaculate. The theater provided free snacks and drinks. The play was very well done and held your interest all the way through. ...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Oil Lamp Theater

Oil Lamp Theater was originally founded in February 2005 as a by-invitation-only theater group. The Theater was dedicated to the preservation of a traditional theater experience in unique and original venues. Keith Gerth staged 20 productions for up to 35 friends and guests each night in his home, a condo in Lakeview. The name of the company comes from Keith’s childhood, where due to the rural nature of his hometown, they lost power often and used oil lamps to light the house. This brought the family closer and created a beautiful soft and intimate glow. In March 2012, Oil Lamp Theater was incorporated as a not-for-profit theater and has established its new location in downtown Glenview. Our new venue provides seating for 60 guests.
